Digital Science Adds Datasets to Dimensions Database
Digital Science upgraded its Dimensions database by incorporating more than 1.4 million datasets as a new content type. All users are able to access the datasets, including those with the free version of Dimensions.
According to the press release, “Data will be sourced from figshare.com and include datasets uploaded on figshare, as well as from other repositories such as Dryad, Zenodo, Pangea, and Figshare hosted repositories including ACS [American Chemical Society] and NIH [National Institutes of Health]. Datasets are defined as items shared on repositories which are categorised as datasets—this excludes e.g. preprints, posters, images, and software. The datasets will be updated daily and more repositories will be added following the initial release. They will become the sixth content type added to Dimensions after grants, publications, citations, alternative metrics, clinical trials and patents.”
